From BMX to babies, three more presenters gave their heartfelt pitches for their projects at Salida Soup 45 on February 21st. Manifest Action Sports, a new childcare center, and GARNA all hoped that their presentation would be the winner. In the end, Kate McClelland’s solo presentation on behalf of the as-yet-to-be-named childcare center won the votes and the Soup Pot of $706.

Salida Soup 46 will be held at the SteamPlant Event Center Ballroom on Thursday, March 21st, beginning at 6 p.m. There is one slot open for presenting: if interested, fill out the Become a Presenter form at salidasoup.org.
